Field experience is an essential part of the professional training of geologists, environmental scientists and natural resource specialists in general. The theory and practice of methods to map, measure and interpret important geological features and characteristics are essential to the study of geology. Methods of mapping, orientation and interpretation are necessary skills for resource assessment, geo-exploration and environmental impact assessment. This unit assumes knowledge of geological principles and methods, namely structural geology and lithology (sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks). It provides professional experiences that is essential for the employability for geology graduates.
